Ramblin' Jack Elliott 

When: Sat., Jan. 3, 8:15 p.m. 2009
Price: $20-$22

Even though that whole singing cowboy persona rings a bit false given his origins as the Brooklyn-born son of a Jewish doctor, Ramblin' Jack Elliott's influence as a folk artist runs long and deep. In addition to being a running buddy of fellow icon Woody Guthrie, Elliott has inspired the likes of Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Jerry Garcia, and Phil Ochs. The 77-year-old bard hasn't slowed down a whit. Not only did he cut his last album, 2006's I Stand Alone, with help from members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Los Lobos, and Sleater-Kinney, but Elliott is preparing for the release of his Anti- Records follow-up, the Joe Henry-produced A Stranger Here due in April. In the meantime, expect plenty of anecdotes and traditional fare from the man who got a nickname through his loquacious manner rather than wanderlust at theNoe Valley Ministry (1721 Sanchez St., San Francisco) on Saturday, Jan. 3. 8:15 p.m., $20, $22.
